"Rich is their humor! Deep are their passions! Reckless are their lives! Mighty is their story!"


  • Director: John Ford
  • Genre: Drama, Kids & Family, Classics,
  • Studio: 20th Century Fox
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Black & White | Duration: 120 Mins

This magnificent Oscar-winning family saga may seem a trifle dated, with its superb but phoney studio re-creations of the valleys of South Wales instead of actual locations. But there's no denying its power to move as well as entertain audiences, as brilliant director John Ford lovingly details life in the pits and valleys of Richard Llewellyn's famous novel. Ford rightly won the best director Oscar and the movie won best picture, but often overlooked is the sincerity of the film's hand-picked cast, notably sturdy, top-billed Walter Pidgeon and fiery Ford regular Maureen O'Hara. The best supporting actor Oscar went to Donald Crisp's patriarch. This is precisely the kind of movie that gave Hollywood film-making dignity and supremacy in its heyday.
